Interlochen Arts Festival

INTERLOCHEN ARTS FESTIVAL – SUMMER 2011

Over the course of two and a half months, Interlochen will present more than 30 major guest artist concerts, along with hundreds of student and faculty performances. In addition to A Prairie Home Companion, headliners include Steely Dan, Chicago, Dierks Bentley, The Beach Boys, Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Lucinda Williams, Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice,” the Decemberists, the Emerson String Quartet, and Interlochen alumnus Rufus Wainwright. The diverse line-up features something for everyone: from the powerhouse vocals of the Temptations to the cross-cultural comedy of Dat Phan and the playful soap bubble artistry of BubbleMania!

STUDENT PERFORMANCES

Interlochen’s Summer Arts Camp attracts more than 2,500 students, faculty and staff from all 50 U.S. states and more than 40 countries, filling Interlochen’s northwoods campus with an explosion of creativity and inspiration.

General admission to most events ranges from free to $12, making student performances one of the best family entertainment values in northern Michigan.

Set amid a bustling living-learning campus, Interlochen’s Summer Arts Festival offers an unparalleled performance environment. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early, stroll the grounds, visit the visual arts gallery, enjoy some delicious ice cream and shop for souvenirs at the Interlochen Scholarshop.

Cherry Bowl Drive-In Theatre

Looking for a Great Night of Fun for the Whole Family? The Cherry Bowl Drive-In is the Place for You!

Come Early. Pick your Spot. Order a delicious homemade dinner. Play some Mini-Golf. Sit Back and Relax! You just took a Giant Step Back into the Fabulous 50’s with the Cherry Bowl Family.

The Cherry Bowl Drive In Theatre opened in 1953 in Northwest Michigan, the Cherry Capital of the world. Our screen tower was widened in the late 1950’s to accept the “New” phenomenon, “Cinemascope,” a larger aspect ratio than was previously available. Look closely during our “Vintage” cartoons to see the size of movies before cinemascope.

Our sound system consists of the original vacuum tube motiograph amplifiers, that still power our speakers at the speaker posts. (These posts also light up with a warm red glow for a truly exceptional visual experience during the presentation.) We have also added the option of FM Radio sound so you can hear the entire sound track of the preshow, feature, and vintage footage through your own in car stereo system.
